Curve Social!!!

Well I’ve been thinking about this new fabulous blogger world I’ve found myself in, and as much as I love talking to all the lovely ladies via Twitter and via our respective blogs, I wanted more of an opportunity to actually meet people!

I love meeting new people and hearing about others lives and interests, so wanted to do something about it. I know there are a few plus size events throughout the year, but I’d really like something more frequent; and when I get an idea in mind- there’s nothing stopping me (even if said idea crashes and burns :/). I hope you all think it’s a good idea too and would like to come and either meet some new people, or catch up with old friends.
So, myself and Lauren set up a Facebook group, so please have a look. As you all know, joining a group means you get all updates as and when they happen; it’d be particularly good if you don’t live in London because photos and such will all be posted there to keep you all in the know.
The first event will be posted v…

Last day of proper summer (for now) outfit

Well hello there, just a quick one.
I wore this outfit a few days ago, and was again photographed by my lovely friend Soph.
I absolutely love this skirt! I do wish that it was made a little shorter, and I could of course alter it if I wanted to, but there’s something about its long flowiness (don’t think that’s an actual word but still) that screams summer for me. Also the fact that there is no black to be seen in said outfit, is to be frank, a miracle!




Summer Time!

Fattylympics/ Interview Series

Hi folks J
Well I’ve just about come down from my high of yesterday. I went to Fattylympics, and met the most awesome, lovely and amazing people. The event started off really nicely, with the welcome, followed by the anthem- I’ve put a video of the anthem below…although I was a bit late on the uptake and failed to record the first couple seconds of it :/





The day was incredibly refreshing and everyone was smiling and getting involved. Below are a few pictures:







Yesterday was also a thrill because I managed to interview four gorgeous ladies for my new blog feature: Interview Series. The ones I have from yesterday will be posted this week, with each interview having it’s own time to shine, with it’s own day. I will start with myself, as what's the point if I don’t bother to give my own views too right?! Head over to the Interview Series page (above) from Tuesday to have a look. I thought it would be best to post the videos first, so the emails I have received so far will be posted at th…

My own rally cry

Hi folks :)
So per last nights post, I would like to invite you to think about a couple of questions for me. I will be at Fattylympics on Saturday, and can't wait to meet everyone and enjoy all the festivities. I didn't want to restrict my questions to just those whom will be attending though, so thought it'd be a good idea to post them now:
*What are your attitudes to being "plus size"? *What do you do when you're having one of "those" bad body days?
*What is your best feature and why?
*What type of style do you wear to compliment your body?
*For those still confused and/ or feeling abashed due to their size, what advice would you give them? *Promote yourself! Share your own blog/website/Twitter links so people can get in touch and/or follow you :)

I will be posting every participants answers and will not edit- I hate it when things are chopped up and things get lost in translation.

If you would like to email me your answers, you can do so…

Answering the call

So a friend of mine asked me what I was doing over the weekend, and I told her I was going to a fabulous plus size event called Fattylympics. I sent her the link and she thought it was great, but at the same time asked me a question I hadn’t even really thought about- how did this all come about? Not the event itself, but the “revolution”. The rally cry, from the plus size community?
I’ve been thinking a lot about it, and here are some of my thoughts (because I could go on forever really):
I think there has always been an underlying frustration for plus size women, seeing the promotion of what the media claims as "perfection". There has been an uneasy truce in this regard, where we have bitten our lips and have for the most part, accepted our ironically small corner in the fashion world- then the size zero movement happened.
All the talk about looking “healthy” and promoting being “healthy”, all of a sudden confirmed what we had always known- the excuse was a pack of lies! It h…
